BOOK TOUR: A Pet For Christmas (A Veteran's Christmas Book 2) by Rachelle Ayala


NEW RELEASE...

Dedication 
To those who still suffer the wounds of war. 

 >>><<< 

Kelly Kennedy thought her life was finally on track. Engaged to the man of her dreams and with a baby on the way, she reassures her five-year-old daughter, Bree, that the father she picked for Christmas still loves her.

Unfortunately, war veteran Tyler Manning has been away most of the year. Recovering from PTSD isn’t easy. Rather than worry Kelly, Tyler spends his time traveling to Afghanistan to work at a children's charity he founded.

Kelly decides to distract Bree with promises of a pet for Christmas. When Tyler is taken hostage by terrorists, she finds it hard to convince Bree that they will truly be a family in time for Christmas.

A Pet for Christmas is a sequel A Father for Christmas. While it can be read as a standalone, you'll get more of the relationship aspect between Kelly, Tyler, and Bree by reading A Father for Christmas first.

Review: An amazing follow-up to A Father For Christmas, which I reviewed yesterday. Kelly and Tyler are engaged, with a baby boy on the way---and Bree is feeling as though she might be replaced in Papa's heart. Bree wants to find her "real" father, and she also wants a puppy for Christmas.

As if that weren't enough, Tyler gets taken hostage in Afghanistan, and it starts to look as though Kelly may now be raising TWO children on her own. Will there be another Christmas miracle to bring this family back together, or will the holidays be overshadowed by grief?

There is more suspense to this story than the previous one. That's not a bad thing, and it keeps the reader engaged, wanting to know what will happen next.

The story alternates viewpoints between Kelly and Tyler, so that we understand what is happening to both of them. Reading Tyler's segments was very emotional, and you feel as if you are right there with him.
I sincerely hope this won't be the last we hear from this group of characters!
